Is this soon HDTV capable? There are commercial MPEG2 HDTV channels available, and last time I checked vdr-softdevice was unable to decode those.

It decoded the stream (1920x1080) but displayed on screen something like 720x576 window of the original stream.

This might have changed but I haven't checked recent soft devices because release notes doesn't mention anything about fixing it.

Best regards, Jori
